Wow, it has been over 3 whole weeks since I last posted. I feel so good!!! Not much has changed for me, so if I had been posting this whole time, they would have been hecka boring!
My job paid for me to go to Cedar Point with a few other co-workers to take some clients who really wanted to go. That rocked.
My fantasy baseball team is in first place. I think it is just cuz I work harder, I can't be THAT much smarter ;-)
I just got an email from Netflix today that they are automatically lowering the rate on my plan. In addition, I can watch 14 hours of movies and TV episodes instantly on my PC each month - for no additional charge. Bargain central, baby!
I'm working on a big project at work, integrating this one product into our company's product. I made a big breakthrough yesterday and everyone is pretty happy. Let's hope I keep at the continued success so I stay in the good graces!
Lastly, I also had a terrific adventure with my car. My serpentine belt broke while I was doing my killer commute. So, I'm stuck. I go to make a call, cell phone is out. I forgot to pay the bill. With Sprint, I could call only Sprint while my service was out and I figured Cingular/New AT&T would be the same. I would just call, pay the bill, and make my calls. No such luck.
So, I have to walk to the next exit (and cross the 4 lane freeway to get off). I hoof it about a mile before a nice man pulls over and drives me to a gas station. Additionally, he lets me use his cell phone to call someone from work to come get me. I had to leave a message and pray they were sending help.
After waiting 45 minutes, someone did come and I got to work. That evening, when I went to take care of my car, I found it had been towed. What the deuce!!! There was a car a mile south of mine that was there for the two days prior (and remained there for a few more going forward!). So, I ended up having to pay to get it out of impound. Sucked.
My friend had AAA and had it towed to his place, where one of my co-workers in their carpool would take a look at it Monday. That was the plan, anyway. Turned out my co-worker was there using the other guy's (also a co-worker) pool at his apartment complex, so he just volunteered to fix it there.
It took us a while, but we got it done for the cost of the belt (and dinner for the amateur mechanic and his girlfriend). Car runs like a champ now. Except for no A/C (but that hasn't been working for months).
I need a new car...
